Our favorite tip of this holiday season -- if you have no time  to run to a store for some last minute item?  How about sugar to decorate those cookies?

 

HOMEMADE COLORED SUGAR

If you're making cut-out cookies this holiday season, you may want to
finish them with colored sugar instead of buying expensive decorations.

Follow these simple instructions for making colored sugar at home:

1. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup granulated sugar evenly over the bottom of
a pie plate or metal bowl, add about 5 drops of food coloring, and 
mix thoroughly. 

2. To be sure the color is evenly distributed, push the sugar through a
fine sieve. Spread the sugar on a pie plate or baking sheet and let dry
for about 15 minutes.

If you make several different colors of sugar, a muffin tin is a perfect
container to hold them in while you're decorating.
